Letter: Eviction isn’t a solution
It has recently come to light that the Vegas building is not fit for people to live in.
My main question is: Where were the yearly checks of this building to begin with and fines against the person or persons who own the building?
Also, where are the people who live there supposed to go?
The shelters in Concord can hold only 30 people and are at capacity. The emergency shelter does not open up until the middle of December, and it closes in the beginning of March.
Why not open one of the many buildings in Concord and have them stay there? One that comes to mind is the unemployment building on West Street.
It’s not fair to tell the residents that they have one day to get out. There has been a problem in Concord for a long time, and now is the time to address it.
